Making Meetups for NeurIPS 2020

What are NeurIPS meetups?

Why NeurIPS meetups?

  • Reducing the need for air travel, and the associated time, cost, and environmental impact
  • Supporting the growth of AI expertise around the world, including in underrepresented communities in tech, and fueling innovation responsibly
  • Creating opportunities for researchers and practitioners who cannot physically attend due to constraints on space, immigration/visas, and exposure to large groups

How can you get involved?

What do we want NeurIPS meetups to be?

  • Leverage recordings and live videos of NeurIPS sessions to share technical content
  • Host live sessions with local AI researchers and practitioners, including local authors of accepted NeurIPS papers who did not travel to the conference
  • Encourage a connection with collocated affinity groups, such as WiML (Women in Machine Learning) and BAI (Black in AI)
  • Gather communities around the same time as NeurIPS, adjusted for their local time zone
  • Have freedom to adapt to local constraints
